on mother's day She told easy child she thinks her bro is in jail or something cause nobody has seen him. Then she starts in about something else and I hang up the phone. I asked easy child if she wanted me to call her back and tell her to quit calling her and she said yes. So I called her back first letting her know that I was not trying to be ugly, but she was upsetting easy child with all the info of her partying with her dad and bro and now again telling her her bro was in jail or worse. I said that neither easy child or I have any contact with her dad or his family and she didn't need to hear anything about how they were living. I told her we both love difficult child very much but we don't support how he is living. She quickly, in true difficult child ,fashion turned to a caring girlfriend saying she doesn't agree with his lifestyle either (huh?) She was sorry to upset us, but she was worried sick because no one has seen difficult child. It took easy child a while to let this go yesterday, I reminded her how her bro would disappear from this girl and have everyone tell her he was not around. I said that is most likely what has happened, he is just tired of being around her. Then she said her dad and his group haven't seen him either and I just reminded her that difficult child had told us before they live a crazy life and he didn't like being around them either. So she let it go. It has taken me a little longer to let this go even after reasoning it all out with easy child. I let my mind wander to the worst case senerio from the beginning. I didn't call the hospitals and I didn't call the police. I have reminded myself that this is how my son is living now and I can not emotionally handle the frantic mom searching for son again. I know once I make the first call it is like a drug and I won't rest until I have turned every leaf. I can not turn back into that person. I have to be strong for myself,husband and easy child I would get a call if something had happened....Right?
